Here she is, Goats and Oats, all stamped and pretty! Even though it’s unscented, I can smell the hint of cocoa from the cocoa butter. I can’t wait to see how it feels! Has anyone used a goat’s milk bar? Could you feel a difference? It’s so hard to wait 6 weeks for soap to cure! 🐐❤️

A stack fo three crackle glazed bowls, thrown with rounded forms compared to those I usually make that are more shallow and flared.
I’ve always liked throwing the same shapes over and over again, refining forms, seeing what it is I like between iterations and so on. One of the largest things I took away from spending six months working in Ken Matsuzaki’s studio was the sheer breadth of forms he made, it was astounding. One of the hardest parts of being a potter is making a style that’s completely recognisable as yours, and nobody else’s. You want the onlooker to know immediately who made it but that’s relatively difficult to do whilst maintaining a simple aesthetic.
Simple is what I like, it always has been. Clean surfaces, not too much adornment and above all, as my path as in ceramics has influenced, good craftsmanship. I always wanted to learn as much as possible during my six years of education and that led me to try numerous types of firing, different clays and glazes and different wheels. I don’t know what I’ll learn over the next year in my studio, I presume most of my newly acquired knowledge will be business based as opposed to making based as with new financial targets to continually chase, bills and so forth those have been at the forefront of my mind ever since signing the lease.
Hamur ile uğraşmak ne büyük bir terapi anlatamam.
Evde ekmek yaparken; ofisten gelince koşa koşa mutfağa girip ekşi maya ekmek hamuru yapardım. Sonra gece yarısına kadar hamuru katla, şekil ver vs
Ertesi sabah kalk pişir, hazırlan yine ofise git...
Bakmayın öyle basit durduğuna, evde de yapsanız bayağı meşakkatli ve yorucu bir uğraş...
Bir süre sonra kendi kendime ‘Neden akşamları bu kadar yorgunluğun üzerine gelip bu eziyeti çekiyorum?’ diye sordum.
İşte o zaman farkettim terapi olduğunu...
Bu tam 3 yıl sürdü...

If there was one thing that felt like home, it was that perfectly brewed cup of chai. Sitting in her room, with that cut-grass smell in the air, she savored the smell, for she knew the big day was almost upon her.

Sunday's = side hustle time 🤙
I have been very busy with moving to Bristol and starting a new job that I sadly haven't had time to work on my jewellery. But now it's time to start working on what I love and get back into it. So watch this space 😄🥂
